In a nutshell, bobby calves, the calves born to make the mother calves produce milk, are sent to slaughter about a week after birth (this is how the industry has worked for years, it's terrible but it's what happens). The calves currently get to suckle and so on, but there is a proposal that the calves be not allowed liquid food (eg milk) for 30 hours prior to transport. I understand the dairy industry needs to survive - but these little calves at least deserve to be treated humanely like any other animal farmed for food.
It's really horrible I'm a meat eater like most everyone else, but really, this is inhumane and just horrible. There is an online letter form thing you can send like a petition, I just wanted to spread the word that there is a public forum on this and we should really do what we can to stop this practice being approved.
